Monmouthshire - The Rolls of Monmouth Golf Club

A top-rated Welsh course with links to the iconic car brand

The Rolls of Monmouth Golf Club, with its championship 6,733 yard golf course, is set in superb countryside with spectacular views of the Welsh hills, challenging greens and provides an excellent challenge for all abilities.

Based in the location where the initial Rolls Royce engine was constructed, this long, undulating golf course with magnificent specimen trees nestles against the backdrop of the Black Mountains.

The clubhouse is the former workshop and garage of the eighteenth-century mansion, which was the home of Charles Stuart Rolls, the early pilot and motoring pioneer. He formed a partnership with Henry Royce and the first engine bearing their famous names emerged from those garage doors which now form one wall of the lounge area in the clubhouse.

The famous Greg Norman stopped here on his way to the top of the world golf rankings. He thought the four short holes on this lush parkland course were fantastic when he was The Rolls' touring professional in the 1980s. Tony Jacklin looked into this claim and was puzzled as to why the Rolls Royce was kept a secret. It is still, to a large extent. and it's well worth discovering it for yourself.
